Dartmouth Academy is a non-selective, co-educational school within the English Academy programme, in Dartmouth, Devon, in the south-west of England. The academy was opened in September 2010 following the merger of two schools, Dartmouth Community College and Dartmouth Primary School. It is an "all-through" academy. Since becoming an academy, it is open to students aged 3 to 18.


Dartmouth Academy has two specialist subjects:

  • Visual Arts – specialising in Art and Design, Textiles, Media and Drama, and Photography.
  • Mathematics – early entry to GCSE/A Level examinations and attendance at university master classes will be features for older learners who are gifted and talented in this area.

The school states that it aims to reflect a culturally inclusive embryo. There are plans to develop partnerships with other schools, academies, further and higher education institutions, and businesses.


The academy is sponsored by E-ACT.[1] It is affiliated with local partner Britannia Royal Naval College, a centre for the training of Royal Navy Officers who, along with E-ACT, support the academy. However in 2014 it was announced that the school will be put under a different sponsor than E-ACT.

The academy also aims to work extensively with Devon County Council and to form close working relationships with local primary and secondary schools.
